THE SERIES WITH OVER 12 MILLION COPIES SOLD
Volume 5 in the USA Today Bestselling series.

A one-night stand with a hot, artistic stranger--what could go wrong?

They say the best way to get over a broken heart is a random hook-up. So my new BFF is dragging me to a bar. All I have to do is wear a slutty dress, choose a dude, and do the deed, right? The thing is, this isn't me. I'm the good girl--the one who has sex for love. But, since the love of my life is shacked up with someone else, I guess it's time to move on.

One night, one time. That's all. I'll have a clean slate.

A guy with a sketch pad, sitting alone, catches my eye. I'm a sucker for the artistic type with dark hair and bright blue eyes. Soon we're in his hotel room doing things I've never done. His smoldering body, perfectly toned with hot skin and a firm touch, has my mind reeling with the things to come. We're both naked and glistening with sweat, breathless.

And then he darts, right before doing the deed, abandoning me in his room. He doesn't return.

A week later I see him again, and realize that he wasn't just a random guy--he's my teacher. My heart clenches at my massive mistake, and I still don't grasp the extent of it. I should have run and never looked back.

If she wants something she is taking it! Come hell or high water she is going to get what she wants. After the nightmare Nate finds out, Kerry is determined to fix it! Only her plan gets a little delayed by her loving mother and loser ex-boyfriend. After finally giving them both a dose of the harsh truth she walks away....for good. Only she feels so alone. The only person who always seems to be there is Beth's brother Josh. The player who admits to only be looking for a sex buddy. Josh is off limits. And Kerry is off limits to Josh. They both wouldn't do that to Beth. Only the attraction is there. But Josh is hiding something. Kerry sees only the good in him. He tells her after she finds out she will run as far away as possible. But she refuses to dig into his past. She likes Josh the way she knows him. Kerry then sets her master plan into action. More like suicide mission. Can she take on the big bad father Ferro and come out alive? Can she tell Nate what she had to do with dear old daddy? Is Nate lying about Josh? Why oh why do you do this Holly and leave us craving for more!

I received an ARC for an honest review and Omg!!!!! The twists and turns that occur in installment 5... Wow I love it and I love Kerry's character in the book. She is strong and determined when she needs to be. I can't wait for the next installment because true to H. M. Ward's style you can't put the book down until you get to the very last word in the very last page and then YOU NEED YOUR NEXT FERRO FIX!!!!! Quick

Wow, wow, wow!!!  I thought I was floored after reading the last installment; boy was I wrong! Secrets & Lies 5 was even more amazing!!  Kerry really stepped up to the plate and grew the kind of backbone most of us will never achieve. Her confrontation with Mr. Ferro was off the charts insane and hilarious!  The problem is...what kind of price will she pay for trying to do the right thing?  HM Ward never fails to amaze me.  I can't wait to see what happens in the final two books!

Another secret revealed!!! I loved how Kerry is finally showing us what she is made of. Kerry is standing up for Nathan with Mr. ?, but in doing so it gives her what she needs , to stand up to her mother and her ex Matt. I love the short installments because I know that I don't have to wait very long for the next one. I really don't know how H.M. does it, but she always seems to know exactly what we want in her books. I was given an ARC for my honest review, but I would give it anyway. Thanks for all your hard work and for being so generous with the ARC's. If you haven't read any of her work, start with this series.

As always each installment of HM Ward's Series gets better and better. After the bombshell that was dropped on Nate at the end of volume four, Kerry is determined to help him. Let me tell you, she does and she gets way more than she bargained for. She has guts that I never thought she possessed. You will laugh your rear off at her antics she uses to get what she wants. Do you layers of secrets and lies keeps getting bigger. In true HM Ward fashion, a big bomb is dropped at the end leaving me craving more!

**ARC REVIEW ** Crazy, funny and more secrets & lies! Kerry has two confrontations, one to the ones that hurt her the most and the other to someone powerful. This book has you laughing at Kerry and the craziness surrounding her and leaves you with a "didn't see that one coming" ending. Another great book in this series!

I loved reading the awesome and amazing riveting sequel to the Secrets and Lies story written by the incredible author, H.M. Ward. Once I started reading the story, I was drawn to the story line and characters and could not stop. I received an ARC for an honest review. Kerry is on a mission to find the letter Nate received and to fix the problem for him. Kerry shops for an outfit, runs into Carter, finds her mom and ex-boyfriend still in her dorm, gets pulled over by a cop, and is rescued by Josh. Kerry has to get ready for her meeting with the rich and powerful Mr. Ferro and this is just the beginning of the tantalizing story. This is a must read story that captures and engages the reader from beginning to end and has Ward's spellbinding cliffhanger. Can't wait for the sequel!

This ends with an amazing cliffhanger that the author, H.M. Ward, is known for and incredible with. Leaving us all wanting more! Kerry has gained the confidence that we all knew she had, and she litterally grabbed it by the balls. After finding out Mr. Ferro's secret, she helped hottie Nathan! Only to now have to lie and keep another secret from Nathan. It seems like an endless circle with them, hence the name of the series! However, Nathan drops a bomb on Kerry...and on her reader's...major cliffhanger! I can't wait for the next book!

With laugh out loud moments, Secrets and Lies 5 gives you the inner dialogue of a very protective and concerned friend of the mysterious Ferro. Kerry's determined to make Nathan's troubles go away. Can she pull off the biggest performance of her life? Who's going to help her? Friendship has a price but is Kerry prepared to risk everything. Will Nate find out the price of Kerry's gift or that she's the giver? A couple of surprises and a well placed bus ride make this a great read!
